Seventh Annual Golf Scholarship Fundraiser
Featured Happy Crowd, Door Prizes for All!

With over 110 golfers and 11 helpers, the Facility Manager Association of New Mexico 2017 Scholarship Fundraiser Golf Tournament will guarantee a record donation this December to the scholarship funds at Central New Mexico Community College and The University of New Mexico.  Enjoying a cool, picture perfect day at the Isleta Eagle Championship Golf Course, golfers and golf helpers alike left the event with a door prize in hand.

Loyalty from the membership and its many supporters (both members and non-member companies alike) who believe in and support our educational initiative is the one constant factor in the annual event’s continued success.  Distinct contributions, both large and small, from countless companies and outstanding individuals personalized the gathering

Again the trend to companies fielding multiple teams of golfers continued as they competed in the Championship Division to win the esteemed silver trophy.

Tables full of valuable door prizes mitigated even a bad day on the greens.  Power tools, bar-b-que grills, a drone, a kayak, restaurant gift certificates, camping gear, and loads of golf equipment and much much more left with the athletes after the post-game buffet.

“Christmas in July!” exclaimed Mark Awe with BNSF Railroad. “Once again this tournament is the best in town!”

Attention Healthcare Facility Managers
Or Any FM Who Needs Compliance Training:
Here is a Resource 

The New Mexico Environment Department (NMED) Hazardous Waste Bureau conducts hazardous waste inspections at hospitals, pharmacies, as well as other types of facilities.  They offer their services to conduct free training concerning managing hazardous waste at hospitals and pharmacies.  Having recently conducted inspections at several hospitals, they have found the majority of them to be out of compliance.  Their aim to provide this training to large audiences spreads the information more quickly than individually inspecting each hospital/pharmacy.

But beyond healthcare, NMED believes they might be able to target some training for other diverse and various types of facilities.  Compliance assistance is a key component in their program and keeping facilities in compliance makes the job a lot easier. 

Need more information to start this discussion? Contact Janine Kraemer, CHMM, Hazardous Waste Supervisor for the New Mexico Environment Department, 2905 Rodeo Park Drive East, Building 1,Santa Fe NM 87505 office  505-476-4372, or email to  or connect with Facility Manager Association’s vice president, Tom Plummer with the Indian Health Services at
